The 311-acre mixed-use development planned for College Park has a new name: Six West.

"Airport City," the $1.5 billion College Park mixed-use development that is expected to help make the south metro a residential, retail and office space destination, has a new name:  "Six West."

The 311-acre development's new moniker was approved by the College Park City Council earlier this week and comes as the project is expected to break ground later this spring.

“West of downtown College Park and just west of the airport, Six West covers six historic avenues, all of which pay homage to five Ivy League schools and civic leader John Wesley,” said Artie Jones, director of economic development for College Park and executive director of Clearly College Park.

“We aim to memorialize the site’s past while developing its future,” he said.

Six West is being developed on reclaimed residential land just west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The groundbreaking will take place on Camp Creek Parkway, across from the Georgia International Convention Center  and newly opened Gateway Center Arena.

College Park’s Business and Industrial Development Authority, Clearly College Park and a collaboration of public-private partnerships are developing the project.

“This development is a testament to the redefined economic growth of College Park, and we hope its thunderous impact on our reputation and economy stands to share the next 100 years,” Jones said.

Six West will include 3 million square of office space, up to six hotels, 548,000 square feet of retail and 450 residential units, including apartments, townhomes and single family and senior living residences.
